Two arrested after pursuit in Adelaide, SA

Two men have been arrested after a pursuit in a stolen car in the early hours of this morning, according to SA Police.

Just after 3am, a patrol (Ruger) saw a silver Volkswagen Polo driving at over 100km/h on Port Road, Adelaide.

The patrol terminated the pursuit, and requested the police helicopter (PolAir) and other patrols to assist in locating the stolen car.

PolAir was soon monitoring the Volkswagen from above, while it drove through multiple suburbs around Adelaide. The helicopter crew were able to relay information to the patrols on the ground, who set up cordons around the area where the car was headed.

The Volkswagen was eventually dumped in Reserve Parade at Findon about 4.15am, where patrols with the assistance of police dogs Rebel and Ruger (whose handler initially spotted the Volkswagen) arrested the driver and his passenger.

A 23-year-old Pennington man and a 27-year-old Ferryden Park man will face numerous charges including illegal use of a motor vehicle, driving dangerously to evade police, driving disqualified and being unlawfully on premises.

They have both been refused bail and will appear in the Port Adelaide Magistrates Court later today.
